Friday, Friday

Anyone else feel like this week dragged on?? We have absolutely nothing on the calendar and I couldn't be more excited! I'm linking up with ChristinaAmandaKarli, & Erika to bring you my 5 things this Friday.

//one//
 I went to a local nursery and stocked up on some mums for the front porch and it took everything in me not to take this giant 5 foot elephant home as well. A girl can dream right?

Ben's school had their fall festival last Friday night and they ended the night with a huge fireworks display. The company who did the show also happens to be one of my husband's clients and Ben thought that was so cool. I'm wondering how the PTA is going to top this next year.

My good friends had their second baby and I took them lunch which really just gave me an excuse to love on their sweet boy while they ate. He is so precious and so tiny. He also has a big brother who is the best.

After years of wanting to go apple picking we finally went last weekend. Honestly, it wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be and there were SO many bees! I've never heard anyone talk about how many bees there are at apple orchards but apparently it's thing and bees love apples. Am I the only one who didn't know this?

//five//
The husband and I finally decided where we'll be going for our anniversary this spring and despite my strong urging and begging to go to Banff or Hawaii we decided upon Washington, D.C. I know it's not super romantic, but neither of us could lay on a remote beach for a week and we love exploring, plus THE CHERRY BLOSSOMS! I've had to start booking some things already because the wait lists are crazy long. I think we've got the sights down, but any recommendations on a hotel or favorite places to eat?

Happy Friday!!!

  1. We totally felt that way when we did an apple orchard a few months ago - so many bugs and bees all around! Definitely makes it less enjoyable! The fall festival looks like it was a blast :)

  2. Hi Cortney!
    I am with you on the bees at the orchard, they would have done me in...I act like crazy person when I see one - whether I'm in public or not. Ha! I'm sure my husband isn't embarrassed at all when that happens. The apples y'all got look delicious though, so that's good.
    I love that you have a little Ben, that's my husband's name too so I'm pretty partial. ;);)
    Have a wonderful weekend!
